Moon may not play
Raith midfielder Kevin Moon is a major doubt for the visit of Alloa due to a calf problem.
Goalkeeper David McGurn remains out with an Achilles injury and Paul Watson is also still on the sidelines with a broken metatarsal.
Paul Hartley resigned as Alloa manager last week, and Kirkcaldy manager Grant Murray said: "Alloa may have been a bit down after Paul leaving last week but their assistant manager Paddy Connolly has been there a long time and they will want to do well for him.
"We have a good home record which includes a 4-2 success over Alloa and a repeat of that win would be a good afternoon's work."
Alloa will have Connolly in charge and he has Stephen Simmons available after a ban.
However, Kevin Cawley is suspended and Jason Marr has been ruled out with a thigh injury.
James Creaney is an injury doubt and Connolly will delay naming his side until a fitness test is carried out on the defender before kick-off.
Connolly said: "We are just getting on with things now after a tough week which could have affected our focus - which is doing well in the Championship. We cannot forget that we are having a good season and a return to winning ways after a disappointing run would be a great boost for everyone."
